About Teresa Afonso de Portugal, (GPAUL)

One of the Illegitimate children of Afonso Henriques I. Not to be confused with Infante Teresa.

dona TERESA Afonso de Portugal . The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Elvira Gualtar" as the mother of "D. Urraca Alonso, D. Teresa Alonso" daughters of "D. Alonso Enriquez", and

in a later passage records that “D. Fernan Mendez el Bravo Bragançon” married “D. Teresa Alonso”, adding that the king separated her from her previous husband “don Sancho Nuñez” with whom he had fought, and that she brought “la tierra de Bragança” to her second husband but that it reverted to the crown because she died childless.

As discussed more fully above, this passage echoes the marriages of the sisters of King Afonso I and is probably inaccurate as written. It is not known whether this also means that the king´s illegitimate daughter named Teresa never existed.
